At its annual meeting on May 31, 2010, the DDI Alliance Expert Committee agreed to charge a newly formed group with the revision of the DDI Tools Catalog (, which aims to support the social science data community by providing a comprehensive, web-accessible database of tools for utilizing DDI metadata. This live preview of the revised Tools Catalog will show its new features and workflow for developer submissions. Feedback from the social science data community on what would make the DDI Tools Catalog even more useful in the future, and volunteers for editing its contents, will also be invited.
